Rangers chairman Dave King has confirmed Steven Gerrard will be well backed in the summer transfer window.

The former England captain has made a strong start to life as a manager after taking charge at Ibrox last summer.

Rangers look set to finish second this term and large investment is needed over the summer to try to close the gap on rivals Celtic.

‘It is clear that the playing squad is significantly stronger than in recent seasons and, importantly for future transfer activity, the overall value of the squad has greatly increased,’ King said.

‘This is a tribute to the work that Mark (Allen, director of football), Steven and their management teams have done to improve the process behind player recruitment and their overhaul of the training methods, and the general wellbeing of the football squad at all levels and age groups.

‘The team requires a further upgrade and the board will continue to back Mark and Steven, who fully understand that Rangers must win titles and cups, and plans are already in place for recruitment in the summer window.’
